Absolutely not, baby, I'm among the least hater-y (hater-ish, if you prefer -- or choose your own morpheme) people you'll ever meet on this board -- or elsewhere.
There may be a presumption that I'm jealous
... that, in reality, I really wish that I too could have a beautiful hunk o' rock like that.
Sincerely, no! I may wish for mansions and swimming pools, but not ROCKS!!! Frankly I think it's boring, common, and unimaginative to want a big-*ss diamond -- just like everyone else. An occasion for women
to say, "Mine is bigger than yours." Yippee.
I really was going for the if-I-were-in-his-shoes angle. I don't think that's what I'd do. Now c'mon, sincere question, what would YOU (yes YOU) do? You have all that you want in terms of your home, your luxuries, and your childrens' future ... and this big ol' extra.....
A million-dollar wedding? Well, at least (like my mansion with pool,) a large group of people would have a good time. But do I have to give them Hollywood-style gift bags??
